Two Leicester City stars should return to action for the Foxes’ trip to London to face Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.

The anticlimactic events of the weekend as Leicester City lost to Everton in a rather disheartening manner – effort and determination was insufficient from some Foxes, it must be noted – are now reinforced in a negative way by the daunting prospect of a weekend trip to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

While the Blue Army can forgive a loss if it is because Leicester are up against a truly effective team, the game plan did not work or something unforseen, unlucky or unjust happens. It is, however, more difficult to understand why the focus as well as hunger of some players seemed absent versus the Toffees.

Obviously there is fixture congestion, injuries galore and fatigue issues. Yet that is why it is imperative for incoming personnel – and some of the more highly regarded athletes in the side – to at least give 100 per cent.

Returning Leicester City stars for Spurs match

Fortunately, Jonny Evans will reappear in the starting eleven in the Tottenham game; the Northern Irish international was suspended for the contest with Carlo Ancelotti’s side after collecting five yellow cards this season.

In another huge boost, Brendan Rodgers declared that Belgian full-back Timothy Castagne should also be available for selection. Read more from the manager at Leicestershire Live.

Elsewhere in Leicester news, the Foxes have received the go-ahead to move into their new training ground near Seagrave Village, as per Daily Mail. Some staff have apparently made the switch to the £100 million facility already. Additionally, the squad is set to train there for the initial time next week. After playing Spurs, the east Midlands outfit meet Manchester United at King Power Stadium on Boxing Day.
